Ive had mine in deep water, very deep. Never an issue. I remember thinking the airbox wasnt cut out for what I was getting myself into but I was wrong. I dont know if its the filter technology or what to be honest. Last bike I rode in deep water was a 1978 KE175 and if you got your ass wet sitting on the seat it was over. The 500 had only the fuel cap and handlebars showing quite a few times. Like you said, floating basically. The few times I would bobble and had to get off it would start right back up where it was and I would ride it out. They make a water sock for the filter too which I think Ill get this year but only because Ive cleaned and reoiled the filter myself now and I dont know where my skills stand on that.
